Time to pick the all-stars

You can see the All-Star selection show Sunday at 1 on TBS and fans will then be told the candidates for the final roster spot on each team, which will be selected via an online vote.

In Sunday's Inside Baseball column, I make my picks. Some of them, obviously, won't match the fans choices (no Derek Jeter here), so we'll have some points to argue. Here's the recap of my choices for starters:

American League

1B:  Justin Morneau. 2B: Ian Kinsler. 3B: Evan Longoria. SS: Marco Scutaro.

OF: Jason Bay, Ichiro Suzuki, Torii Hunter.

C: Joe Mauer

National League

1B: Albert Pujols. 2B: Chase Utley. 3B: David Wright. SS: Hanley Ramirez.

OF: Raul Ibanez, Ryan Braun, Brad Hawpe.

C: Yadier Molina.

What do you think? Where did I go wrong? Have your say in the comments section.
